Hey there, thanks for getting back to me on this one. I hope I haven't offended you with my previous post on the vitamin subject. I do see your point and I agree with what you've said. I do avoid vitamin A as well because of the same reasons. At first, when I was really depressed and desperate to prevent further shedding, I was doing the same thing - avoiding all vitamins but at a certain stage of the whole drama I decided to stop doing that. Anyways, I wish you a speedy recovery
Quick update on my situation - still shedding, probably the same amounts, no further recession just shedding all day long. I guess with chronic TE this is expected to happen. Overall, I keep my spirit high and refuse to give into the fear of getting bald. I had enough of that.
Hey there, bruv. If I have to be perfectly honest with you, avoiding vitamins sounds like a really bad idea to me. Avoiding vitamins means that you would have to inevitably avoid certain foods. This means that you will have a poor diet and eventually you will cause more damage that it's already done. Please think it through before doing anything irrational. There is no way that you could force yourself not to touch a group of foods for a prolonged period of time, not to mention that you shouldn't. And more importantly by doing that you will probably increase the shedding. Balanced diet is key when fighting such irregularities.
On the other hand, this theory sounds like...utter bullshit to me. Avoiding all fat soluble vitamins because you have overdosed on one (that has a different structure and effect on the body)? There is no way that could be backed up medically. Please consult with a doctor.
I've already sent you a private message but I thought about you yesterday so I wanted to drop you a few more lines. I will be frank with you. I think that you should shave your head. You will feel and look much better. Trust me, it's better to shave off the remaining hair and I am positive that you will look fine that way as opposed to now with that visible recession. This will ease you up and will lessen the stress you are experiencing at the moment. When I did the same thing last year I felt so liberated and definitely better about myself. At the end of the day, you should find a way to be at peace with yourself. Looking at falling hairs and touching them won't help one bit. On the contrary, it will make you even more self-conscious about your appearance.
You are a man in your prime and you should not worry to such an extent about that problem. Yes, it is unpleasant, yes, most certainly accutane has caused that but beating yourself up over it is a self-damaging thing. Do not do it!
